Fold Your Own Furniture

The Carton Furniture Series was originally designed in Japan in 1965, and now Metropolitan Gallery in Tokyo is producing these Kids’ Sets. The furniture is made completely out of folded cardboard with no glue, tape, tacks or anything like that.
They are designed for kids but can support the weight of most adults, and when you do crush them or otherwise reach the end of their useful life, the cardboard is recyclable. They’d make for a fun, stylish addition to the kids’ playroom or anywhere you’d rather have something that’s, well, disposable.
The product site is in Japanese, so unless you’re skilled in that tongue, here’s an automatically (that is, imperfectly) translated version.
Thanks to Design Milk for the great find.
